Instructor Biography

Mathias G, M.Sc, engineer, life-long learner

My academic background is M. Sc. physics, and I've got experience from teaching it at university. I currently work as an engineer in Norway.

I'm passionate about learning new things, which makes Udemy my favorite playground. I love to find all kinds of interesting courses and learn new skillsets. I also aspire to make my sincere contribution to Udemy by sharing things I'm good at.

One of my major strengths is finding tweaks to optimize different aspects of life, especially within speed-learning, nutrition, health and fitness. I guess you could also call me a life-hacker.

I'm scientifically inclined with a curious and analytical mindset. I use this to break things down into fine details. I like to know how things work, which led me into studying physics in the first place. I'm kind of a nerd and also a member of Mensa. In addition to Norwegian and English, I know Finnish, German and Russian. Currently I'm learning Portuguese.

My Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is INTJ

Instructor Biography

Vegard Gjerde, Ph.D Researcher, Physics Didactics; M.Sc, Nuclear Physics

I started my academic life at university with petroleum technology. This quickly turned into a combined physics and petroleum technology bachelors degree, as I developed a passion for physics. Then, I got my master's degree in nuclear physics. I've continued taking courses at university after this - mainly in economics - although I never go to lectures. I suspect I will continue taking courses for many years to come. 

I worked for a year as a substitute teacher, while studying at university and pursuing my own projects.I also taught in several different physics courses at University as a scientific assistant.

Currently I am pursuing a Ph.D. in physics didactics (how to learn/teach).

I've been passionate about learning new things for the past 8 or 9 years. There are always some books nearby and most of my time spent on Internet is spent gathering knowledge. When I start anything, I always want to master it. This has fueled my interest in how we learn and, especially, how we learn fast.

One of my biggest strengths lies in finding the underlying principles and seeing connections between things. My curiosity is always driving me deeper and deeper into the subjects I find fascinating.

My Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is ENFJ
